The Real Brokerage Inc. Announces Share Consolidation to Satisfy Nasdaq Price Requirement
TORONTO and NEW YORK, May 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Real Brokerage Inc. (“Real” or the “Company”) [TSXV: REAX] [OTCQX: REAXF], a national, technology powered real estate brokerage in the United States, announced it will be consolidating all of its issued and outstanding common shares (“Common Shares”) on the basis of one (1) post-consolidation Common Share for each four (4) pre-consolidation Common Shares (the “Share Consolidation”). The Share Consolidation represents another step towards the listing of the Company’s Common Shares on The Nasdaq Capital Market (“Nasdaq”).
A successful listing on Nasdaq is subject to the Company’s satisfaction of all applicable listing and regulatory requirements, including, but not limited to, registration of its Common Shares with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and satisfaction of the Nasdaq initial listing criteria, including stock price. Following receipt of all required approvals, the Company will issue a press release announcing the anticipated date for the initiation of trading on Nasdaq.
Share Consolidation Details
Real’s board of directors approved the Share Consolidation to facilitate the Nasdaq listing and it is expected that the Common Shares will commence trading on a post-Share Consolidation basis on the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) on or about June 1, 2021 under the current symbol “REAX” and new CUSIP number 75585H206.
Assuming the Share Consolidation is completed, the existing 143,406,673 Common Shares will be reduced to approximately 35,851,668 Common Shares, subject to adjustments for rounding purposes. No fractional shares will be issued. Any fractional interest in Common Shares that is less than 0.5 of a Common Share resulting from the Share Consolidation will be rounded down to the nearest whole Common Share and any fractional interest in Common Shares that is 0.5 or greater of a Common Share will be rounded up to the nearest whole Common Share.
The exercise price and number of Common Shares issuable upon the exercise of outstanding stock options, restricted stock units, warrants or other convertible securities will be proportionately adjusted to reflect the Consolidation in accordance with the terms of such securities.
In connection with the Share Consolidation, a letter of transmittal will be sent to registered shareholders. The letter of transmittal will contain instructions on how registered shareholders can exchange their share certificates or Direct Registration System (“DRS”) statements evidencing their pre-consolidation Common Shares for new share certificates or new DRS statements representing the number of post-consolidation Common Shares to which they are entitled.
Beneficial shareholders holding their Common Shares through an intermediary may be subject to different procedures for obtaining their post-consolidation Common Shares. If you have any questions in this regard, you are encouraged to contact your intermediary.
